The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

One of the positives (only positive?) of Toys R Us going out of business was that they also sold their shelving for pretty cheap!

$40 got me this wall panel and peg board plus shelves. With the new wall space I am playing around with this setup to show off the 'found' items in my collection (plus some resin ones just to highlight the purpose of the 'found' stuff)

Nice!

Would you mind posting a video somewhere and monologue?

Just a thought, stuff like this is what we can use to draw attention to the forums and group at large...

That's a great idea, although I do feel that all the peg-holes make the background look very busy. Great start though!

Is that an L85A1 I see sneaking in there, in one of those images? If so, that is THOROUGH, wow! :)

*Admittedly, I'm biased; I'm a bullpup-config fan.

lol, yes it is. It is just airsoft, so it isn't really worthy of 'found prop' wall. It also isn't really up for my other wall of "favorite sci fi weapons of all time" (where I now have the pulse and smartgun along with some others). So for now I sort of tucked it into the background near the mannequins. I think it is kind of appropriate being that it was just in the background of the film.

Assuming you mean on the hand welder, the left part is an "interlas" brand TIG welding torch. More info can be found at the end of this thread.
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=13013&hilit=interlas+tig+torch
The "interlas" brand is a bit of an 'old fashioned' welding torch unlike most on the market today, but are still produced new. I have never been able to find any outside of England, though.

The top part may have been craft made. If it is a found item then it has yet to be identified. Some discussion of it was pretty recent in this thread viewtopic.php?f=3&t=17541
